About a mile from Avebury, this is a lovely welcoming place to stay for anyone who loves walking. The owners are very friendly and will do their best to make your stay as comfortable as possible. It's geared towards walkers and offer breakfast packs (for early starts) and a lunch hamper for a small fee. You have a good range... More

We enjoyed a really great stay at this wonderful B&B last week. Simon and Kate were lovely hosts and we stayed in the Avebury room which was immaculate in every way, with wonderful views from the bedroom window. The cottage is beautifully decorated and breakfast was superb. Perfectly located for visiting Avebury and the surrounding countryside. Highly recommended!

If you are thinking of visiting Avebury (and you should: so much to see, and fantastic walking!) then I thoroughly Beckhampton B&B. Simon & Catherine were the perfect hosts: friendly and accommodating, and a mine of local information. I felt very well looked after! The mid-week deal they had for the lovely single White Horse Room, was such a bargain,... More

What a fabulous place to stay. Great to find a place so near Avebury, as public transport users this was wonderful as the 49 bus stops just down the road. The kids stayed in " White Horse " and loved the pictures. We stayed in "Avebury", gorgeous. The map provided means you can walk to Avebury avoiding the main roads,... More

We interrupted Simon at the last set of his Wimbledon match when we arrived. He was extremely welcoming and a fantastic host who has refurbished Isobel Cottage really nicely. It was everything a top notch B&B should be, warm, welcoming, very clean, very homely and very personal. Everything was functioning perfectly. Breakfast was served in a beautiful breakfast room and... More

Thank you so much. We hope the rest of your holiday went well. Alas, we have to say that Megan, our 12 yr old chocolate brown field spaniel sadly died in July and is much missed. A successor will no doubt appear at some point in time. More

From the first moment Catherine answered the door to welcome us, to the wonderful breakfast the following morning and our departure, we were absolutely delighted with every single part of our experience at the Beckhampton bed and breakfast. Located perfectly for a 20 minute or so country walk to the centre of Avebury, with a great pub opposite, there is... More

Very friendly and helpful owners: provided lifts to and from local gastro pub and up to start of Ridgeway walk the following morning. Comfortable rooms and excellent breakfasts, including home made bread and jams/marmalade. Loved the jigsaw puzzle on the landing! There is a hot tub which we didn't sample - certainly would if we visit again.

Thank you for your kind review. We always offer walkers a lift up to two miles to the start of their walk usually Overton Hill for the Ridgeway. Although not far, the walk down the A4 is so dangerous as no footpath......Wiltshire Council note! More

Isobel Cottage is a charming B&B in a beautiful setting. Simon and Catherine are warm and engaging and were very helpful suggesting restaurants and giving walking directions. It's a very pleasant 20-minute walk to Avebury, and it's so nice to see the sight without having to negotiate the car park. Our room couldn't have been more comfortable, complete with a... More

My wife, son, and I spent our first night on vacation in the U.K. at Beckhampton. The gracious hosts sent us a suggested routing from our arrival point in Southampton which took us on back roads through countryside we would have missed on the main thoroughfare. What a thoughtful and smart service! The décor in each room had a theme... More
